Volunteers at the United Way Day of Caring - USFWS.


Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge has valuable and stimulating internship opportunities for the upcoming summer season. Interns will work side by side with educated professions as they learn the ins-and-outs of the wildlife management field. Many opportunities exist for you to join other interns and observe what they are doing as well. Something new is happening at the refuge just about every day, so why not take advantage of this great learning experience? An internship at Forsythe is the perfect way to start off an exciting and rewarding career! Free, newly remodeled dormitory style housing is available.

Volunteers play a vital role in helping the FWS fulfill its mission of conserving, protecting and enhancing America’s fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats. Through the help provided by volunteers, Service employees can accomplish jobs that would otherwise not get done because of funding or personnel limitations.
